After graduating from the prestigious New College of Florida, Dr. Baker was admitted to the Physician Scientist Program at the University of Miami in South Florida where he obtained both MD and PhD degrees. Upon graduating, Dr. Baker successfully matched in general surgery at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC. Dr. Baker first became passionate about plastic surgery in the early 2000’s during his residency training in general surgery.It was there that he saw first-hand how amazing and inspiring plastic and reconstructive surgery can be, especially when restoring both function and beauty. “I suppose it was the combination of advanced surgical techniques, cutting-edge innovation and aesthetically beautiful results that I found so inspiring about plastic surgery.”
Drawing on this inspiration, and with encouragement of mentors like Dr. Chris Attinger and Dr. Scott Spear, Dr. Baker decided to apply for residency training in plastic surgery at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. During his residency in plastic surgery Dr. Baker met and worked with Dr. G Patrick Maxwell who became an influential mentor and a close friend. This ultimately led him to complete the aesthetic surgery fellowship with Dr. Maxwell focusing on advanced surgical techniques including surgery to correct unsatisfactory outcomes after cosmetic breast surgery.
